I can't say I've ever been a big fan of Mario Party games. They're fun enough party games that sort of mix board games with mini games. And that's fine. But too often they seem to come down to chance and luck. I hate that.
But I did recently read a review of Star Rush in Nintendo Force where the reviewer was also not a fan of the series. And he loved this one. The other draw for me was that apparently Star Rush is a quality SINGLE PLAYER party game. So I figured I'd give it a try.
Know what? It's not bad! I mean it's still a fairly shallow board game mixed with mini games. And luck is surely still a thing here. But it's also pretty fun. I get the feeling it'll be the sort of game that I play through, enjoy, but never revisit again in the future. Which isn't the worst thing in the world. Also, I think my wife might enjoy it, so it'll be worth hanging onto.
So far I'm up to World 2-1.
